Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) will be the keynote speaker on the second night of the Democratic National Convention, CNN reported Thursday.

Clinton, who conceded the Democratic presidential nomination to Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) in June, will address convention delegates on Aug. 26, the anniversary of women gaining the right to vote.

Tuesday night at the convention is also expected to include a salute to the Democratic women in the Senate.

On Wednesday, Clinton penned an e-mail fundraising solicitation for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

“In these last 100 days before the election, let’s pour ourselves — each and every one of us, heart and soul — into electing Barack Obama and giving him a filibuster-proof Senate, ready, willing and able to create the authentic change America is yearning for,” Clinton wrote.
